Sounds great. Please work on it :)
And please discuss the details on some hurd specific list, if you are
interested in development, email@example.com is the appropriate list I think.
(Not that I am not interested, I am subscribed two both lists and some dozen
lists more, it's just that some people may subscribe to only one because
they are only interested in one, we should try to mind their expectations).
